I going to start a small lawn care business any advice is welcomed
every imagineable topic has been discussed...even what people eat for lunch, lol
LOL.... I had grilled cheese sandwiches today. Cheap lunch.
Advertise, buy equipment, cut grass.
Show up on time everytime and do what you say you will do!
Charge more than 15 bucks to cut grass and if you don't like the super hot weather, then don't start cutting grass!!! It only makes us that do cut and do like the weather look like idiots when people quit showing up, none of us are trusted at that point.... Also, if your hair begins to raise slightly during a daily thunder storm, start running and go in zig zags! Your going to get hit..... Its a daily event in the summer as you know.
Not accusing you, just offering the asked for advice.
Treat every customer like there your only one.
First, how old are you? I'm 18, and I'm going throught the hardest stages of starting up a business: getting customers! I've decided that I'm going to spend more money on advertising over the next month or so. And then if that doesn't work, well, it's back to the drawing board! What kind of equipment do you have? How many potential customers?
Dont follow BIG W'S business plan
What did you do? lol
